The Way by AudreyBenjaminsen The Way by AudreyBenjaminsen
Lately I’ve been very inspired by the Ancient Chinese religion of Daoism. I wanted to represent the concept of “Yin” and “Yang” as conjoined twins (separate beings who work as one.) The twins holds a glass orb with sloshing water, representing the universe and it’s balance. An enlightened person is above, and demons are below. I’ve not been feeling very happy with my work recently, but I mostly like how this came out.

Oooh! I love this. I love how the water in the bowl makes the symbol and the Sun on one dress, Moon on the other. I like the four legs for balance (is that part of Daoism, the world being a cube and not a sphere?) and the chinoiserie behind them, like a wardrobe/sideshow entrance.

I think the idea of conjoined twinhood would have been stronger if they had 3 legs between them instead of 4. But I love the details in the background--very delicate and pretty.

Did you spell Daoism (taoism) w/ a D on purpose? If so, awesome. I hate that random T in that word...
